New England Condo Expo to Feature Free Seminars

New England Condo Expo to Feature Free Seminars

 The planning of free seminars for property managers, trustees, and unit owners  is picking up pace as New England Condominium’s 2011 Expo draws closer.  

 Held on Tuesday, May 24, at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, the free  event will showcase over 120 exhibitors from throughout New England, along with  free advice booths and a full slate of educational seminars.  

 Full Day of Seminars

 Running throughout the day, the seminars will cover topics such as energy, legal issues, board operations,  effective property management, and budgets.  

 Seminar presenters will include attorneys from The Law Offices of Goodman, Shapiro & Lombardi, LLC, in Dedham, MA, and Providence, RI, and expert condominium consultants, National  Condo Advisors, LLC.  

 Also in the works are two comprehensiveseminars, one targeted for property managers, the second covering a wide range  of thorny maintenance issues. Senior experts in property management and engineers familiar with condo maintenance problems will serve on seminar panels designed to provide definitive answers to today’s problems in these important areas.  

 Last year's programs attracted standing-room-only audiences, and the complete  lineup of seminars for this year – to be announced shortly – is sure to present essential and cutting-edge information for anyone involved  in running a community association.  

 Free Advice Booths & More

 In addition to networking and education opportunities, the show's popular free  advice booths will be returning as well. If you have questions about your  association’s finances, policies, or day-to-day management, you can stop by one of the  booths for answers from leading legal, management, maintenance and financial  professionals.  

 And of course, no trade show would be complete without giveaways and raffles. Throughout the day, random drawings will be held for a  host of valuable door prizes.  

 $2,500 Reserve Fund Giveaway  

 This year will also mark the return of the Reserve Fund prize drawing, courtesy  of New England Condominium and Yale Robbins, Inc. One attendee will win a  $2,500 contribution to his or her building association's reserve fund. The  winner will be drawn at random after registration has closed, and a check will  be made payable to the winner’s building, care of its management company. Only trustees qualify to enter the  reserve fund drawing, and attendance at the Expo is required for eligibility.  For complete details on how to enter the reserve fund drawing, visit the Expo  website,
